P-F11: Don't Be Sad Because It's Over, Be Sad Because Things Are Sad

If you woke up in Monday morning at the bottom of the abyss, that was probably because you drank too much at your Super Bowl Party and then inadvertently took some Benadryl. And football is over.

I’m sad. Like, there is no ying to my yang. No ting in my tang tang. When I see Tebow news, it’s only about him getting to second base with some lady (Tebow 2nd base = Tebowing together) and I don’t have any improbable OT win to juxtapose that ridiculous stuff with.

But you want to know something real? There isn’t a damn thing we can do about all the off-season Tebow talk. Believe that. We earned the right to enjoy football season, but like all things, they aren’t ours to own. Football season is temporary – just like life. Football is ethereal blah blah blah.

Football season belongs to us, and it will come back to us. Have you ever lost something you really loved, like a dog. Or maybe you got a hole in your favorite jeans? Those things come back. At a store somewhere is a replacement. Football season will eventually appear again in August or early September. Is it arrogant of football season to put us through something like mid-season baseball or early round NBA basketball playoffs? Sure, but despite this you love football season. You love football season HARD.

Damned skippy you love football season!!

It’s been a good five months with you guys. I treasure our time together, despite you not letting me win a single contest. At least I have this blog. God bless this blog. And Pick’em. Thanks bros. And the ladies too.

Always look on the bright side, but never look directly into the sun. I leave you with a payout list.


  1. I won something last year??? Wow I don't remember that! Hope i got paid.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros! (AP): “Go to sleep on time during the week!” (3)  -- apparently you aren’t into MACtion Beelzebubbles (CC): “Now I can get some decent sleep during the work week” (3) More time for football 18 National Championships (CG): “Plenty of football and golf” (2) Bite a Kneecap Offs (RK): “MACtion!” (4) -- yes!

P-F21: Week 7 NFL Bonus: Best news of the year!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
